The monument to the 13th New Jersey Infantry Regiment on Carman Avenue in McAllister’s Woods. This view was taken facing southwest at approximately 1:00 PM on Sunday, February 14, 2010.

The Gettysburg area now has sunshine and highs in the 60s. However, even though we have officially reached the spring season, we wanted to take a last opportunity to show you Gettysburg in the snow. During one of the days before the park roads were cleared we walked to and around Culp’s Hill just to document the appearance of the snow covered landscape. Today we visit Spangler’s Meadow and McAllister’s Woods.
